At Bica Coffeehouse, we are all about Local!

Currently at Bica we are featuring Bay Area artist Matthew Muspratt, an American writer, photographer and business & legal consultant with expertise in international development and sub-Saharan Africa. Muspratt is a recent arrival to the Bay Area, having spent most of the past decade in Rwanda, Kenya, Ghana, and Sierra Leone working in banking, legal aid, and entrepreneurship development.

Muspratt’s photography gravitates more to place than people, especially natural landscapes. His current blogging/visual project, Across the USA on 1 Gigabyte a Day, chronicles his virtual road trip across America using Google Street View (

Muspratt’s photographs and writing have been published in/by, among others: The New York Times; Tennis Magazine; Brookings Institution Press; Communication, Culture & Critique; PRI/GlobalPost.
